Are you using a copy of phoenix from the phoenix project page on
mozilla.org, or are you using the preliminary Debian packages from
If you're using the latter, you're likely falling victim to the same
thing that I am - namely, the fact that the phoenix .debs are compiled
with gcc 3.2, while java is compiled with gcc 2.95. If I fix the line
in the phoenix script to not send all output to /dev/null, I see that I
get an error loading the java plugin... a quick google search revealed
the cause of it. What it boils down to is:
1) Use a version of phoenix compiled with 2.95
2) Wait until a version of java compatible with a gcc 3.2
mozilla/phoenix is available.
(I'd suggest doing #1... I believe that the binaries on mozilla.org are
compiled with 2.95)
